It is said people pay the doctor for his trouble; for his kindness they remain in his debt.
If this is true, many people are indebted to Brian Tunnicliffe.
A retired family physician, the friendly doctor has helped thousands of people in Gananoque during his 45-year career.
For him, it was an honour to serve his community.
For others, Dr. Tunnicliffe was a hero.
It has been said the greatest use of life is to spend it for something that will outlast it.
For local residents, the late Judge William J. Henderson made the greatest use of his life.
A founder of Amherstview who became a Supreme Court of Ontario Justice before his death in 2006 at age 89, the late judge’s foundation helped residents at Helen Henderson Care Centre this week with a donation of $25,000.
The gift is another example of the judge’s continued impact on Amherstview through the purchase of new hospital beds and an upgraded tub room at the local retirement/long-term care home. The grant officially launched the home’s first fundraising campaign.
